tuned's quotes

Ako mozes da vidis

unisteno delo svoga zivota,

i bez jedne reci da ga ponovo gradis,

ili da bez uzdaha ili protesta,

podneses gubitak onoga sto si dugo tekao;

ako mozes da budes zaljubljen, ali ne i lud od ljubavi,

ako mozes da budes jak, a da ipak ostanes nezan,

da ne mrzis one koji tebe mrze,

a da se ipak boris i branis;

ako mozes da slusas kako tvoje reci

izvrcu nevaljalci, da razdraze glupake,

i da cujes kako luda usta o tebi lazu,

a da sam ne kazes ni jednu laz;

ako mozes da sacuvas dostojanstvo i slavu,

ako mozes da budes skroman,

iako si savetodavac kraljeva,

ako mozes da volis svoje prijatelje kao bracu,

a da ti ni jedan ne bude sve i svja;

ako znas da razmisljas, da posmatras i upoznajes,

a da nikad ne postanes skeptik ni rusilac,

ako znas da sanjaris, a da ti san ne bude gospodar,

da mastas, a da ne budes samo mastar;

ako mozes da budes cvrst, ali nikad divalj,

ako mozes da budes dobar,

ako mozes da budes pametan,

a da nisi cistunac i sitnicar;

ako mozes da zadobijes pobedu posle poraza,

a da te dve varke podjednako primis,

ako mozes da sacuvas hrabrost i glavu,

kad je svi ostali izgube.

Tada ce sreca i pobeda

biti zauvek tvoji poslusni robovi,

i ono sto vise vredi nego slava:

Bices Covek Sine moj!

IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!
